At an incident, someone is suffering from severe burns. How could you help them?

Dealing with burns

In relation to burns, the Highway Code states:

Put out any flames, taking care for your own safety. Cool the burn for at least 10 minutes with plenty of clean, cool water. Cover the burn with cling film if available. Don’t try to remove anything that’s sticking to the burn.
